This half term we are all taking part in Forest School with Mrs Mannion and Mrs Bates.
Check back each week to see what we have been up to!
Week Five Forest School
Today at our final Forest School we used a saw to cut a branch, then made a hole in it with a drill to make a necklace. We decorated our necklaces. We also tried to make our own cord out of raffia and enjoyed a hot chocolate. We even did a spot of fishing in the pond, and we caught a fish!
Thank you Mrs Mannion and Mrs Bates for making forest school so much fun!
Week Four Forest School
Today we were really excited we had a fire! We used a fire strike to make sparks- some of us managed to set fire to a piece of cotton wool! We cooked popcorn over the fire in Mrs Mannion's special pan then we toasted marshmallows. Some of us made jewellery from the acorns that Summer and Ryan brought in.
Week Three Forest School
Week Two Forest School
This week we used secateurs and lashing to make a stick person. We then used a hand drill and conker clamp to thread a conker/acorn and made a 'thing string'. Finally, we enjoyed a well earnt hot chocolate!
Week One Forest School
This week we enjoyed making our own ink using blackberries, vinegar and salt. We then pretended to be soldiers and used a feather quill to write a letter to Harold or our families.
We learnt how to make a one poled tipi shelter (just like the tents they would have used in 1066).
Our first day in Year 5 :)
Autumn Term 2
This week we have kicked started our new topic Science Investigators with our WOW! activity. We had great fun making spooky Halloween slime using corn flour and water. We made it even more special by adding food coloring and Halloween confetti. We loved playing with our slime and learnt all about Non-Newtonian liquids.
We can't wait to carry out more investigations over the course of the half term :)
Well done for your fantastic Halloween decorations they were all brilliant!
This week we have been learning all about the Battle of Stamford Bridge. We discovered that it was 956 years this week since the Battle took place. We used maps of the world and the UK to explore where the soldiers travelled from and three different colours of soldiers to show what happened before, during and after the battle.
